    Are there any banks that are 420 friendly.

    Some banks like chase and bofa wont do business accounts or buisness loans for cannabusiness.

    FDIC means no cannabusiness, so if you can find a private bank that's not federally insured then they might be your best bet. As long as it's still a schedule 1 substance the feds won't take your illegal money...

    Credit unions operate under the National Credit Union Ins. Fund (NCUSIF) which is organized and operates similar to the FDIC to protect customer deposits.

    Do they have the same restrictions.

    Any operators out there w real world knoledge.

    Ultimately my question would be is it a waste of time to pull together a business plan and go looking for a small business loan to scale up my grow operation

    Keep an eye out on the legal states, Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska. They're working on setting up some sort of State based system to handle cannabis money. Might not be available yet, but keep your ears to the news in their states.

    I was reading about work arounds w prepay debit cards and similar financial services.

    If the goal is to be a legit business, pay taxes, file articles of incorporation etc. I am looking for a way to handle cash make deposits track expenses just like any other business.

    Looking to the legal states is probably the best as you say. Thanks

    Right now there are 11 major banks that handle cannabucks... more heading that way soon. There is too much money involved for the banks to ignore this for long.

    We had a list at work the other day, been trying to find it online but not having much luck. I will ask monday where this list came from. Obama did make it legal for banks to deal in cannabucks this year, and last I saw there were like 250 small regional banks and credit unions like Numerica in Washington allowing this money in the various states, with several major players like Chase entering the market recently. I will keep trying to find this list and get back to you.

    I can fund your business needs, as long as you have a bank account and have been in business for 6 months. Bad credit is ok. For a first time business arrangement, I can loan 2x your monthly sales, up to $250,000. 90% of my loans are approved and funded within 10 days.

    Use the money for whatever you want. I don't want any partnership and I won't be asking for any personal guarantees.

    Thanks but we wouldn't need any funding at this time.

    Was just letting folks know dispensaries have a way to accept credit card and debit card payments.

    We will lend to the Cannabis industry as long as you have a business bank account. We want to see 6 months bank statements and then we can lend to you. The credit unions are the banks that are working with the Industry. What state are you located in?
